Bah! Humbug! Challenge - Shades of Pink

Boy you guys know how to set a difficult challenge! This is my fourth attempt - the others landed in the waste bin!

For the main image I used an Elusive Images tree from the Snowy Trees plate and stamped it twice and embossed it in shades of pink embossing powders. I then stamped and embossed the tree again in black to give the image some depth and sponged the background.

I matted this onto the next size nestie die after having stamped the pink card with the tree again in black and embossing the edges with sparkly embossing powder.

Silver fabric snowflakes and pink foliage and flower finish the card.

Thanks for visiting my blog and please leave a comment.

  4. Hi Janet
    I've just had a good tour round your blog, there's some fab stuff here!! Such a wide variety as well - is that what you mean by a compass with no north? If so, it's a great compliment and I thank you for it. I love how you have managed all these Xmas cards in spring, I can hardly bear them by the time Christmas comes - so a good idea to have a weekly challenge to make one, by the end you'd have 52!

  6. Beautiful effect you have created with your stamp so well worth the time and effort you put in to this card. Thanks for joining our Bah! Humbug! challenge again this week.


  7. In a way it's a pity to have to bin stuff but it did lead to this stunning card so I think it was time well spent. It's fabulous.

  9. Hello Janet

    Oh I am so pleased you did not give up as your card is so beautiful and stunning. I love the shade of Pink it's soft and fluffy !! and your gorgeous tree sets the pink off to perfection.

    Thank you for joining in our latest challange.

    Bah! Humbug!

  10. This is gorgeous Janet. I'm not a pink girl and I would never have thought I'd like a pink Christmas card so much, but I do!

    Your stamping and embossing certainly achieved the depth you wanted. Lovely!!!

  11. This is lovely Janet. The multi layer images work so well and the shade of pink is gorgeous.
    love Jen x

  12. Sorry Janet - pink seemed like an 'easy peasy' one at the time. Fine if you have a good collection of papers but not so good if you haven't. Everyone, including you, have done amazing cards though so it shows what we can do when stretched.
    Next week's challenge (starting tomorrow) is super easy - I promise.
